About the Episode

Trauma. Self Discovery. Balance. In this episode, Preston Kanak talks with Kristina Frost about a traumatic event that changed the trajectory of her life. Instead of letting it get her down, they talk about how she was able to turn this event into a learning experience and one that set her on a path of self discovery.

About Kristina (in her words)

First and foremost I’m a designer. I’m an executive coach, a software user experience designer, an interior designer, an outdoor guide and educator, a photographer and a film producer. Whew. It’s a lot, and I LOVE IT.

I believe ANYTHING can be designed when you have a set of values, constraints, and access to your intuition to guide you.

Through coaching, I help people design their life and homes using a values-based framework that points them in their direction of their “true north”. When you don’t use the framework, it’s easy to get lost in the status quo, feeling unhappy, and out of control of your own life. Sound like your life right now? If so, read on. (Otherwise, good job being true to yourself!)

I’m a certified CPCC (Certified Professional CoActive Coach) through the Coaches Training Institute (think the Ivy League of executive coaching). This means you’re getting executive leadership coaching, the stuff CEOs and VPs at big companies get!

I don’t half-ass things and I believe that some things are really important to invest in, especially myself and YOU, and paying for quality training and experiences.
